Abstract

"Serial entrepreneurs" run multiple businesses in sequence while "portfolio entrepreneurs" run multiple businesses in parallel; they differ from "novice entrepreneurs" who have so far operated only one venture. The present paper is the first to model occupational choices between all three entrepreneurial types: It goes on to discuss its theoretical predictions in the light of independent evidence about serial and portfolio entrepreneurship from the extant literature.
